FREE Asthma Testing

May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, which means it's time to check out how well (or unwell) you breathe.

During May, adults and children across the United States will be able to get checked for asthma during the 11th annual Nationwide Asthma Screening Program, sponsored by the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. During a screening, adults complete a 20-question test developed by the ACAAI for the program, while children under age 15 fill out a test designed for them (there's also another version that parents fill out for children up to 8 years old). The screening includes a lung function test that involves blowing into a tube and a meeting with an allergist to discuss whether a person requires a more thorough examination in order to determine if they have asthma. To find a participating allergist near you, please visit the acaii.org.
